DOWN RIGHT RUDE – THE RIBS ARE GOOD...SOMETIMES. YOU HAVE TO ORDER EVERYTHING AT ONCE OR THE OLD MAN GETS RUDE. ITS NOT LIKE THERE'S A LINE TO GET IN. THE SERVICE IS POOR.

Mr. Wilson on Steve Harvey's Radio Show – I just heard Mr. Wilson on Steve Havey's radio show and he made me WANT TO COME TO PITTSBURGH today! A really fun interview and made my mouth water for his ribs! See ya soon, Mr. Wilson! I just might have to plan a vacation around visiting your restaurant!

Louisiana Recipe – The ownner of Wilsons once told me that the recipe came from Louisiana during the slave days. I've taken several friends there over the days and they all raved. Everytime I make it to Pittsburgh I try to stop by Wilsons for the best ribs in the country. The meat falls off the bones and the sauces are excellent. Mild is HOT and Hot is firehouse!!! I recommend going mild with the Hot on the side. The neighborhood is not that great so be careful.

The city's favorite southern pit-style BBQ makes up for its lack of seating with serious smoked meats. – In Short
Though there are a couple of tables available, Wilson's Bar-B-Q is a genuine Southern-pit barbecue, selling takeout almost exclusively. Slow-cooked meats include tender chicken and pork ribs. Meals come with spongy, commercial white bread that's perfect for sopping up the tangy sauce (available hot or mild). Creamy sides include potato salad, macaroni salad, coleslaw and peppery collard greens.

Mouth-watering – If your looking for REAL BBQ, then this is the place to enjoy your ribs or chicken. If you want commercial, then go elsewhere. The ribs fall off the bone and the smoked flavor will remind you of days gone by. Everytime I return to Pgh, I always make sure to stop and have a plate. I live in New Mexico and even we don't get it this good.
